As luck would have it, C and I had to drive clear across town to the nearest Apple store so she could buy a replacement charger for her Mac. And, as luck would have it, it was a beautiful, sunny, balmy day, and to celebrate the turning of the season, we kept driving clear out of town to one of our most favourite spots, Ladner, and the Reifel bird sanctuary.

We came to see the beautiful resident Sandhill cranes, but stayed for the afternoon and walked the trails.

An amazing day out here. We fantasize about living here on this little island with the bird sanctuary and a smattering of organic farms. At the moment there is only one property for sale here and it’s a 3.5 million dollar winery. A bit too much, so we’ll keep dreaming. 😀

    Veronica, these are such beautiful photos! By the way, today, I gave your “Pond” card that I received from you to my sister & husband for an anniversary card. They have a pond on their property and were delighted to see the beautiful card! 🙂

    Wow, what a sanctuary! It is no wonder you dream about living there! If I lived in your area, I would want to visit the birds every day!
